I have the Photo Lab app on my iphone that has lots of filters for pictures. I took this picture of the aspen trees outside my window near the bird feeder. There are a couple Steller Jays hanging out waiting for peanuts.
Playing with the filters I made this picture. It reminded me of a mosaic and needed to be made into fiber art.
Here is the work in progress on my design wall with the photo inspiration along side. I used my hand dyed and painted fabrics cut into irregular squares placed on black fabric. The jays were cut out of the black fabric.
Here is the final piece 17″ wide and 22″ tall. I’m taking it over the the Gallery on Keystone Lake tomorrow if you want to see it in person.
